    We got rid of ours, by offering it on freecycle. I did dismantle it, first though, but going by the response, I needn't have bothered - had loads of people after it!

    If it is REALLY bad, any of the 'gardens & rubbish cleared' ads in lcal press will do it.

    Your local council will also offer the facility - might even be cheaper than a private contractor.

    If you're in reciept of any benifits, you might even get it done by them for free.

    Why do you need someone to do for you. It only requires a hammer and perhaps a wrecking bar(crowbar). Even if you cannot or do not want to do it yourself, a local handyman would make short work of the job.
    I can afford anything that I want.
    Just so long as I don't want much.

    I don't live in your area, so the company I'm using is no good to you, but I managed to find a company that dismantles old shed, takes it away & installs new one. Cost about the same as companies that do supply only.

    I found my shed company by looking in the adverts of my local paper & got them to send me a brochure. You could try that if you haven't already.

    An internet search has brought up this company, don't know if it's any good to you.http://www.garasheds.co.uk/
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

    Get a sledge hammer, and smash into pieces small enough to fit into the back of you car, then take it to the local recycling centre a.k.a rubbish dump.

    I dismantled my old wooden shed last year in 2 nights......Took all the glass off first then used sledge hammer and woodsaw to cut the frame in bits. Was great to burn on the BBQ last summer.

    I took mine down by putting a hard hat on (well, a cycle helmet), unbolting whereever there were bolts, and then using a sledgehammer to knock the rest down. Then I burnt it. (It was very decrepit - I didn't want to go inside in case the roof fell in or I fell through the floor.) I'm extremely petite and it took me a couple of hours to demolish singlehanded, so I reckon that if I can take a shed down, anyone can.

    Good news i asked my uncle if he knew anyone who could do it on the cheap, he said he will do it with his mate for free and he will even put up my new shed for free

    I did offer him some money but he won't take it.
